What is a Gallery Photo Wall?
Also known as a salon hang or a salon styled hang, a gallery photo wall is a mixed, collage display of framed photos or artworks, aesthetically arranged on a wall to represent a common theme or format.
A gallery picture wall is great way to display your favorite photos and images in an organised and eye-catching manner and can add character and personality to any room. Gallery walls can be arranged in various ways, such as straight lines, geometric patterns or organic shapes.

1. Transform a Plain Wall into a Feature Wall
A gallery wall frame display is a stylish and creative way to convert any plain wall into a feature wall, making a statement and capturing focus and attention for a room.
When combined, a gallery photo wall of framed pictures can be can make a bigger feature than just one or two frames by themselves. It also creates a better overall aesthetic and tone to a room.
There’s also something hypnotic about arranging a bunch of images of the same theme and displaying them in a balanced and symmetrical format. Especially if they’re nostalgic and happy memories that tell a story!
2. The Best Solution for Multiple Portraits
Sometimes it takes more than one picture to tell a story. For this reason, a photo wall collage display of photo frames can be the best solution to display multiple photos and portraits that you might want, to best represent your family and your story. It is also an interesting way to view your photos and images, especially if there is an underlying theme, such as a event, a milestone or a vacation.

4. Buying Gallery Wall Frame Sets vs. Individual Photo Frames
There’s nothing wrong with buying individual photo frames to create your own gallery wall display. This can be interesting and fun, especially if you want to create your own unique and different display. You can also gradually build and add to your frame display over time as well.

A photo wall frame set also makes it quick and convenient to instantly create a smart, cohesive look to an overall display. Similar to the look that an interior designer might create.
All of the frames in a photo wall collage set have also been optimised and considered for an overall completed style which will create a finished look as good as any interior designer could create for you, but at a fraction of the cost.
Buying a photo frame set can also save money and offer value, as you effectively buying multiple frames in a bundle, rather than individually. This means in many cases, the price you pay per picture frame can actually work out to be much better value than if you were to buy them separately.
